The Psychopath

SUMANA SAHA

The psychopath was hell en route,
Pain aching lefty tooth.
Baulked by the burning root,
Waiting for his friends’s boot.

The gall in his heart was way too dense,
His mouth still had the stinky stench.
Envy had him fully drenched,
Madness was the only bench.

He spit on the cleanest hand,
Now no one else but few do stand.
The bird with a greedy eye,
The disillusioned cloudy sky.

The psychopath will meet his mirror,
Which shows the crimes of past error.
Does the freak now feel the terror,
What tells him the magical mirror?

Does his eyes now feel to cry,
Evil worn out , time to pry.
Goodness needs just one more try,
Or we will free him…..the caustic fry..!!!

A Rolling Stone Gathers No Moss

SUMANA SAHA

The transfer order has come
Another gloomy day, ends with rum
Tequila , scotch , vodka , wine,
This farewell party, nothing seems fine.

To some it reads the lucky charm
Prudent timing did no harm.
Another scope to scale the peak
A glimpse of hope for the weak.

But let not stain the test of time
He will leave tomorrow , back he wont come.
New city, new dream
Awaits him , awaits him.

But memories past, wicked lust,
Ray of love , cigarette dust?
Is all that he left behind?
No soul to cheer
Nobody to hear
His bosoms cry.

The money-flukes crave
For the weakest , weakest brave!
The labyrinth of this verse:
Is it solitude or a curse?
And all his pain of loss…
.
A rolling stone
gathers no moss.

Well-being at Work

SUMANA SAHA

Stress has many interpretations and is one of the most ambiguous words in the English language.”

Stress is an important parameter in organizational behaviour, in part due to the increase in competitive pressures that impact workers and managers alike. Stress carries a negative connotation for some people, as though it were to be avoided. This is unfortunate, because stress is a great asset in managing legitimate emergencies and achieving peak performance. Stress, or the stress response is the unconscious preparation to fight or flee that a person experiences when faced with any demands.

Consequences of Stress

POSITIVE STRESS

Positive stress can bring performance and health benefits. The Yerkes-Dodson law shown alongside indicates that stress leads to increased performance upto a certain optimal point. Beyond that, further stress and arousal can have a detrimental effect on performance. Healthy amounts of stress are desirable to improve performance by arousing a person to action. It is in the mid range of the curve that the greatest performance benefits from the curve can be achieved. Performance declines beyond the mid point in the curve because of increasing difficulty of the task to be performed.

INDIVIDUAL STRESS

“Work-related psychological disorders are among the ten leading health disorders and diseases in the United states.”

Kolkata – A Cultural Extravaganza

SUMANA SAHA

The cultured celebrate her

The core of culture, they call.

The evenings, they say,

Bubble with life!

The perfect combination

Of Yellow and blue

Giving rise to green.

The sun above,

The rivers and seas below,

Converging where born

The green hub of the nation!

Rustling flowers for worshiping,

Using washrooms in nearby malls while roaming,

Treating tenants as poor,

And not listening to anyone.

A mandatory mango-mustard after lunch,

A compulsory nap in the afternoon,

Shouting at maids all day,

Claiming to be the best cooks,

At the most a day or two

Without rice and fish!

Conservative to stick to own norms,

But not opposing to others’,

A culture so aged and diverse

And yet so unified and original!
